Does fashion dictate who you are? A presentation in Odorheiu Secuiesc

The Miercurea Ciuc Faculty of Sapientia University is holding another presentation in Odorheiu Secuiesc on Tuesday 12th of April 2016 from 6 pm. The event will be hosted by G. Cafe.

The title of the presentation is “Does fashion dictate who you are?” and it is centered on fashion, consumerism and sociology. The title is a quote from the song ” Brék” by the musical group Neurotic.

In the presentation, Dr. Laura Nistor, lecturer at the Miercurea Ciuc Faculty of Sapientia University dissects the fact that our social status is greatly influenced by what products and services we consume, how trendy we are, and to what degree we are like others. Exclusive products are only affordable to the financial elite, but the market of mass products helps us as consumers imitate the behavior of the elite.

The so-called fast fashion chains provide Admission to haute couture and encourage us to overspend. However, there also appeared some alternative communities which create fashion by emphasizing differences such as voluntary simplicity, sustainable consumption and slow fashion.

Admission is free!
